Couples Married 50+ Years Show Beauty of Everlasting Love


Now here’s a photo series that will soften the hearts of love’s most stubborn cynics. Inspired by her own parents’ marriage, which lasted for 46 years, Saratoga Springs, New York-based photographer Tracey Buyce started a photo series last year showing couples that have been married for 40 years or more. She started a contest on her blog, asking people to nominate these couples, who would, for their time, receive a free portrait session and a flash drive of images.
As she wrote on her blog, “Each relationship has its own unique beginnings and from that unfolds decades of shared lives. Marriage is complex, full of ups and downs and joys and sorrows.

World Falls in Love with Quokka, Australia’s Most Adorable Animal


The world has spoken and it’s declared the quokka, the happiest, most photogenic animal on the planet. Taking the Internet by storm is the hashtag #quokkaselfie which shows the small marsupial posing for the camera, with humans, while donning its most charismatic grin. Though it bears a slight resemblance to its cousin the kangaroo, the quokka is arguably cuter, with a round body and fluffy ears. And, of course, who can ignore that smile? Interestingly, the quokka, which is about the size of a domestic cat, has no fear of humans. This is most evident in all those fun selfies.
In the wild, you’ll find these adorable animals on some smaller islands off the coast of Western Australia, largely at Rottnest Island. Quokkas usually spend their days sleeping and resting under shady bushes or dense vegetation. They can also be seen eating; their diet consists of grass, leaves, seeds and roots. But judging from the Instagram photos cataloged at #quokkaselfies, these charming creatures don’t…

Meet Hulk, a 175-Pound Pit Bull and a Lovable Gentle Giant


Meet Hulk, an enormous pit bull that lives in New Hampshire. He’s only 18 months old but is already 175 pounds and growing, making him one of the world’s largest pit bulls. Hulk is even trained as a professional guard dog by his owners, Marlon and Lisa Grannan. They run Dark Dynasty K9s, which is a kennel that specializes in pit bull terriers. And, it’s partially because they understand dogs so well that Hulk’s intimidating size also means that he’s a gentle giant. Hulk loves to play with his family, including the couple’s three-year-old son named Jordan. He loves to ride on the dog’s back!
The family has a special bond with their lovable canine, and he’s considered priceless to them. Not only do they care deeply about Hulk, but also changing the general misconception about the pit bull breed. “They’re amazing family dogs.

Powerful Video of Affectionate Skeletons Shows That We’re All the Same Inside


As this powerful video begins, a crowd of people curiously watch as two skeletons hug, kiss, and dance behind a giant x-ray screen.

The video goes on to show many dancing skeletons that represent both romantic and platonic love among same sex couples, siblings, best friends, and those with different religions. It presents the message that we’re all the same on the inside.
